Alban, Britain's First Saint Launch
Launching in June 2019, the Alban, Britain's First Saint Project brings the story of Alban and his role in the nation's history to life, as well as highlighting the many treasures the Cathedral has to offer such as the Shrine of St Alban and the magnificent medieval wall paintings in the Nave.
Visit us this summer and enjoy the brilliant new facilities, improved access and our brand new Welcome Centre.
In the lead up to St Albans day - Saturday 22nd June - there will be a very special walking pilgrimage launched. On St Albans Day itself, the Alban Pilgrimage puppets will take to the city's streets to tell the dramatic story of St Alban. This will be followed by a city-wide Roman Festival including activities and events for the whole family to enjoy!
